Sizing Recommendations

  • Order the same size that you would normally wear in other leather boots or leather dress shoes.
  • Do not order the same size that you wear in sneakers, as they tend to run 1/2 size larger than this style.
  • If you are between sizes, we recommend ordering the smaller size.
  • Of the customers who order the wrong size, over 81% order a 1/2 too large.
  • All of our boots are listed in U.S. Men's and are in traditional 'D' width.
